South Street Halloween Bash Was Spooktacular, Really One of the Best Family Fun Events

Last week I hit up a lot of neighborhood parties, and parties in general. One of the most fun, filled activity celebrations was on South Street, those folks know how to party. South Street Headhouse District had plenty of tricks and treats for children and adults of all ages during the neighborhood’s annual Halloween festivities.

SpooktacularI also saw a lot of folks who had attended the East Passyunk Halloween festivities at the South Street event, as EPA’s family event was scheduled 11AM – 1PM making it the perfect party hopping situation. Remember that for next year as well.
A few of the activities that were held at South Street Headhouse included: Pumpkin putt-putt golf (which was so fun) * Pumpkin pie eating contest (new) * Jack o’ lantern contest * Costume contests * Free neighborhood trick-or-treating at dozens of businesses * Aerial performances from Philadelphia School of Circus Arts * Pumpkin decorating * Hay wagon rides * Straw hay bail maze (so fun, I got lost) * Seasonal bites * Live music * Magic show * Adult beverages with Commonwealth Ciders and Philadelphia Brewing Company * Winter coat charity drive

South Street businesses formally opened their doors to welcome all the boos and ghouls dressed up in costume from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. Families Picked up their list at PumpkinFest and look for ghosts hanging outside all participating businesses. Children 12 and under, had to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. It was a beautiful Halloween celebration on South Street.

I’ll be running Shymaweeen either later today or Sunday. Must head to the radio station for my gig, then I have a few trees I must see.
